Form & Verdict

0-6 this year but ran respectably in first-time blinkers at Goodwood (1m6f) most recently; interesting off a workable mark in the retained headgear, with the return to 2m looking ideal; C&D winner in 2021.

2lb lower than when successful at Chelmsford (2m, AW) last November, but recent efforts raise doubts over whether she can take advantage so she needs the first-time blinkers to help turn things around.

Scored twice on Flat last autumn then had a fruitless spell back over hurdles; met traffic issues on her way to finishing third over C&D (good) two weeks ago when returned to this code; possibilities off same mark.

Came good on Flat last autumn with 2m wins at Ascot (good) and Newmarket (good to soft); more to prove on soft, as her latest start (heavy defeat at Ascot) confirms but she was in good form going into that; usual cheekpieces are replaced by a visor.

Form & Verdict

Has a doubt over current form; however, he's well treated granted a revival and some of his 1m6f form suggests this new trip is worth exploring; sole win came off 2lb higher; market support should be noted.

Generally very disappointing this season but arrested his decline when staying on well to take second behind bang-in-form rival at Chelmsford (1m6f) a fortnight ago and remains very well handicapped on older form.

Form & Verdict

In good form over 1m6f in May for Ian Williams, winning at Salisbury then second at Nottingham; never figured over 1m4f on debut for new stable but this step back up in distance looks a plus; has won over 2m.

Multiple winner over jumps; seen only rarely on Flat in recent years but scored at Thirsk (1m6f, soft), albeit in lower grade, on his most recent attempt under this code and looks difficult to rule out.

Very well handicapped on best form; however, he's on a three-year losing spell and lacks recent match practice having been absent since October; market may prove best guide on debut for new yard.
